My Ride: E46 '01 325cic
Humming noise

Hey there,

So I've been poking around the forums and been searching, and can't find an answer.

I recently bought my 01 325ci at around 77k with the top needing some "manual assistance." I'd tried it a few days after and literally nothing. I've paid to get it coded. They came up with the main pillar position switch being grounded and the top up button is permanently on. I've simply unplugged and replugged both switches and then I'm back to square one where there needs to be manual assistance.

Now when I try it, it unlocks at the windshield and lifts a bit then I hear humming and a few clicks then nothing.

Also I plan on doing a proper intro once the top works properly.

Thanks for any help,
